I spend a lot of time griping on the forums, so after playing with the new Stamp Mill for a few minutes I just wanted to give KEEN a thumbs up for a change. This tool answers the problems with crafting small stone at the table, and replaces the 'ore crusher' mod with a speedier version. I'll miss the graphic of the old ore crusher, but I can always just set one up in the corner for ol' times sake. Now while we are all still glowing from the praise I'd like to suggest that the next bottleneck is the furnace. Now that I have sacks and sacks of iron dust, I still need to paddle them through the furnace one bar at a time, 6 max. Ouch. The solution? The Foundry. It's the upgraded version of the furnace, where you can make molds, then load the molds (and maybe fancy fuel like coal or oil only) into the foundry, and walk away while the ore bars are mass produced. Make the bellows hook to the windmill so you need power too, keep it an endgame tool. Finally, the crafting table can upgrade to the workshop, maybe a passive NPC style toon standing next to a big bench to make your torches and catchblocks for you. We get our old crafting UI's back, and there is still a progression as you go from stone ax to simple furnace to foundry and factory.
